, properly billed to the government and used to support estimates for future contracts. over 100 billion -- and i didn't say 100 million -- over 100 billion of contract costs have been estimated, recorded, billed and controlled using these business systems. the complexity of these systems gives them incredible power for documenting and managing business operations, but also, the potential to create formidable obstacles to transparency for oversight and audit when poorly designed, incorrectly used or not updated. those weaknesses and obstacles are at center stage in this hearing. we will swear in two panels of witnesses, today. the first panel will represent federal agencies whose work involves dealing with or auditing contractor business systems. those wilkenses -- those witnesses are jeff parsons, executive director of the army contracting command, april stevenson, director of the defense contract audit agency, david rickey, director of business -- director of contract business operations at the defense contracting management agency, dcma. our second panel will consist of witnesses from

the counseling sessions could be used to ration care for seniors or anyone else? >> the american medical association endorsed the bill. this has done tremendous service to public. one thing that august has done is with all the counterclaims that are going on and claims and the mythology, it's forcing people to get educated on the bill. that is what is happening. one thing we noticed is we get a lot of calls from the members. often they're not happy when they get the calls. we have a spike of people for the basic information, that tells you they are asking tough questions and want to learn about what is in the bill. >> shannon: thank you for coming in. >> appreciate it. >> in a sign of the economic times the city of chicago is hanging out closed for business side. city hall, public library, health clinics and most city offices are closed for day tomorrow in part of the effort to reduce the budget by $8 million. while most city employees have the day off without pay, police and firefighters will still be on the job. parts of florida are under tropical storm warning at this hour. new depres

guest today is martin crutsinger from the associated press. you can phone us with your comments. you can also send us messages by twitter. how much of this positive news that we are seeing -- is the white house taking credit for? how much of it is just change over time because the time has come? guest: president obama is a politician, so politicians will always take credit for good economic news because there will be blamed for bad economic news. it goes both ways. you're right, we have a business cycle. we were in a down. -- in a down period -- this has been the longest recession in the post-waworld war time, but this one does seem to be in the now. host: can you make predictions? guest: economists believe it could have been in the third quarter of this year. instead of the gdp shrinking that we could start to see a positive number. the problem is that most recoveries, unemployment is a lagging indicator. it is now at 9.4%. many forecast that it will go above 10%. it will probably peak in the spring or summer of next year. host: the get the sense that unemployment numbers are things tha
not all of a bad thing there as they could use a little bit more rain across parts of the parched southeast as we head on through the next couple of days. but as you mentioned, that's not the only game in town. we also have tropical depression an ana which was a tropical storm, and we have tropical storm bill behind that, which is the bigger system and the one we're really most worried about. it could easily become a hurricane here within the next 12 to 24 hours. now, the news with ana is that it will probably weaken and stay a tropical depression or even less as it moves into the caribbean. however, bill, even though it may become a hurricane and a fairly potent hurricane, right now the indications are it could stay off shore of the east coast. that's what our latest computer models are telling us, but we can't let our guard down. from the middle 6 august into the middle of september, that is the middle of the hurricane season, and so claudette is just a reminder of what things can do this time of the year. lester? >> jeff morrow in florida. we'll stay in close contact with you a

the country on -- what else? the cnn express. joining us now from the missouri state fair. talk about getting the pulse of america, ali, what are you hearing? >> reporter: yeah. this is a fantastic place to do that. we've been driving from atlanta to des moines, and we passed through georgia, kentucky, tennessee, illinois, missouri heading into kansas and iowa, and we're talking to people usually in places smaller than would normally get media coverage about health care. in the beginning of the week as the debate was really heating up on tv with the town hall meetings we were trying to get a quieter discussion going. there was plenty of disagreement where we went. we ended up in one interesting place in paducah, kentucky, northwestern kentucky just on the illinois border, and had a bit of a town hall meeting. one of the women was formerly a congressional candidate. she was a democratic candidate who ran in the last election and lost but had some very, very strong views on health care. here is a bit of a taste of what she told us. >> my husband and i are two of the 47 million plus that don't h

the iranian leadership, is not as monochromatic than we thought. what concerns us at the end of the day is not so much a change in personalities, but a change in policy. we would like to see an iranian willingness to decyst from supporting terrorist groups. we've seen none of that. on the contrary, biusiness as usual. we'd like to see iranians willing to suspend enrichment of iranian. we'd like to see them stop resisting the subterfuges. we see none of that across the board. >> do you accept iran has a right to a civil nuclear program? >> we believe all countries have a right to nuclear energy. but there is a difference in that and the ability to enrich uranium on iranian soil. it's not in countries that have systemically lied about their nuclear programs through the century. >> it doesn't say, by the way, if you've lied, you no longer have -- who decides that process? >> i think the international community has to decide and they already have decided because of a tremendous credibility problem with iran. even if iran agreed tomorrow and said, okay, we'll have this type of supervision ov

policy. thank you for joining us. >> thank you. >> let me introduce our two reporters. jennifer. for the water post and "washington post".com. let's start. >> you've been quoted as saying august is going to be a make or break month for health care. the president has said the same thing. so far we've seen a lot of anger, hostility and questions on what is in the bill. if it continues at this pace through the entire month, what impact will that have when congress returns? >> i think if it continues down this path, august will be a lost opportunity to develop in consensus that needs to be developed on the part of the american people. and i think the important crucial thing for the president and for leaders on capitol hill on both sides is to break down the components of health care reform and talk about where there is consensus. because, frankly, people aren't getting a sense that there's consensus and there is on important elements which i know we'll talk about. unfortunately, all of the stories are process stories about who is disagreeing with whom as opposed to where do people a
using. he talked about claims that his reform agenda includes provisions for so-called death panels for senior citizens. >> first of all, when you make a comment like that, i just lost my grandmother last year. i know what it's like to watch somebody you love who's aging deteriorate and have to struggle with that. >> even as the president forged ahead and tried to answer his critics, he acknowledged that his reform plan is not perfect. but he argued it is the best hope for helping the most people. >> the truth is, i want to be completely honest here, there is no perfect, painless, silver bullet out there that solves every problem, gives everybody perfect health care for free. there isn't. you know, i wish -- i wish there was. i wish i could just say, you know what, we're going to change the system. everybody will get as much care as they want any time they want. everybody will have it, and it won't cost anything. and doctors will be happy and nurses will be happy, hospitals will be happy, insurance companies will still make a lot of profits, drug companies will be able to charge as
paychecks. there's an $8 billion tax on people who use stuff in their health savings accounts for over the counter drug purchases. 2.5% tax on a health plan that is not acceptable by the government and $2 billion tax that all of us pay. sean: i want to talk about the political implications. look at harry reid's numbers. chris god is in trouble. governors corzine and paterson of new york, corzine is losing by a lot. bob mcdonald has a big lead. toomey is plipping the polls by 20 some odd points. do you think this holds, as time goes on or is this a short-term bump for the republicans? >> it has long-term ramifications. between now and november of 2010 is like several geology call ages will come and go between now and then. but it is a significant change and likely to remain because the administration in my opinion is not going to respond in a appropriate way. we'll have our first test in november in new jersey and virginia. and i suspect we will see republican pickups. sean: sign that for me. karl rove. thanks. it's the preliminary year of our "sleep-in panel." you get to sleep in on su

[ applause ] >> last week president obama said i didn't have to worry about a government health care plan and private carriers out of business, and he said that fedex and ups, or private companies, are profitable, and the post office wasn't. now doesn't that seem like a good reason to not let government take over healthcare is to mark up my word for it, take a look at what the daily show's jon stewart had to say. >> this is a town hall meeting isn't there a simple way to explain that government programs can work pretty well yet not threaten the solvency of private companies they are competing against. >> people say how can a private company compete against the government? if you think about it, ups and fedex are doing just fine. right? no, there are. it is the post of

the country to start using some of the smart practices that you are using. frankly, medicare and medicaid provide a lot of care for a lot of patients, particularly seniors. if they hear from medicare, can you start doing things smarter, they have the incentive to do it. once they put a smarter system in place, the benefits spillover to the private insurance market as well. we want to do it through medicare and medicaid, but we also want to see in the private insurance market that heah providers start thinking smarter and providing better care, which often turns out to be lower-cost care. it is not going to happen overnight, because a lot of these systems have been put in place for a long time. you are in grand junction or the mayo clinic or another good health care system, each year they are continually comparing notes. they have a peer review process where doctors are exchanging ideas, and they are continually making the system better and smarter, and over time, we can bend the cost curve so that instead of having inflation go a lot faster than everything else, it matches everything else
amendment. so i would have to say. >> you have actually given us a little insight already, but how did your experiences affect you as a person? . . >> i have an opportunity to do things with my bride. we go to football games or we go motor homing. and you try to be as normal as possible with all the security considerations. and i like that. i miss that part of life more than anything else. that i can't just walk around. anonymously anymore. i really truly miss that. but i think, though, the way it's really changed me is that you really -- even talking tonight i'm very, very reluctant to have a strong opinion on something without having briefs or opinions to read and think through. it slows you down. because you know, this job is -- it's easy for people who have never done it. [laughter] [applause] at what i've found in this job is they know more about it than i do. [laughter] >> especially if they have the title law professor. but it also is easy with people who know what they think before they've thought. [laughter] they know how they are going to come out and which position is th
repeat add refrain he used in other town halls, taking a shot at the u.s. postal service. >> ups and fedex are doing a lot better than the post office. >> reporter: afterwards lane said he wasn't satisfied with mr. obama's answer on the public option. >> i asked for in my question, i didn't want generalities or philosophical arguments. >> reporter: did the president hint that the public option may not be in the final bill? not quite. >> the public option, whether we have it or don't have it, is not the entirety of health care reform. this is just one sliver of it. >> reporter: he rapid up a question about doctors to join him in his efforts on health care. >> if you are a fiscal hawk, you more than anybody should want to reform the health care system. >> reporter: you know, alex, if you wanted a good round-up of everything the president has tried -- every point he's trying to make, he did an opinion ed in "the new york times" where he felt like he read everything. at all three town halls this week in person, none of them were contentious. and i think that should tell us that, in fact, oth
. we just happened to know how to use them. we just happened to build a country, a mightity arsenal that defended democracy around the world almost a century and it was all an accident. that is absolutely not true. we people. and they talked about rights. and i want to get back to this. i will get back to this. one of the things that i find to be a hair-raising experience, fig ratively speaking, of course is the idea and you hear this from the left and hear it sometimes from people on our side of the aisle, will talk about health care as a right. people have a right to health care. it sounds good. people don't want to see people denied health care. but it is a fundamentally flawed argument and fundamentally against what actually built america for prosperity. and let me explain this. you look at the founding documents of the nation and the first one is the declaration of independence. and in that document, they talk about unalienable rights and list four, life, liberty, the pursuit of happiness and the right to change the government that infringes on those. those were the four foundi

think we have been missing the context of this youtube is fantastic t takes us everywhere we can't go, but it doesn't give us context. that's a problem. >> when i watch cable, amy, it seem like this endless loop of these loud moments. one woman in a blue dress, katie abram, i've seen her 50 times. >> indeed. it's perfect for television. you have the audio, the visuals, the heat and passion. some loops have not been played, kenneth gladny who was at one of these town halls, was beaten up. he has not been splashed on the front pages. he has gotten less attention than professor gates and his arrest at harvard. the context conservatives are concerned about is the context this is supposed to marginalize and characterize the entire opposition to health care plan as being fringe and hysterical. the same treatment is not given to the other side when their folks come out to protest. >> obama keeps repeating this line how tv loves a ruckus. we heard gibbs say the media was disappointed that no one yelled at the president after his first town hall meeting. is there a grain of truth there? >> sur
and a rescue shelter says this crime should be used as a lesson to others. the group says that punishment is too lenient. >> there definitely needs to be counseling on top of more jail time. people need to know that this is unacceptable. i think that everyone needs to recognize that. all lot of people say it is just a cat, or just an animal, but it is a living being, and we need to all show some compassion. we need to recognize that if they could do that to an animal, they could do that to a human being, too. >> police say that is the sixth case of animal abuse in the past few months. >> lisa found 74 dead cats in her columbia home back in 2006 predict police found 74 dead cats. neighbors complained about an odor coming from the town house that she shared with her mother. for people recovering after an accident involving an ambulance in southwest baltimore. fire officials say there was a collision around what 30 this afternoon. to paramedics were taken to mercy medical center. the two people in the suv were treated at the university of maryland medical center. >> exactly how this accident
hate when people use the imagery regardless of whether they're on one extreme or the other. but do you believe congressman, that the anger you're seeing is from fringe crazies or is this something deeper? s>> basically, it is that one individual. but there are other single individuals, but it doesn't speak for the goodness of america. what speaks for the goodness of america occurred in november of last year. when for the first time america elected an african-american as president of the united states. it would not have happened if 43% of the all of the white people who voted, voted for barack obama. that is the america we stand for. >> do you believe as you sit there today barack obama would still command 43% of the white vote? >> i'm not sure. >> you have to look at the context of which things are happening. the nation is going through extraordinary political possess. the process that made this country great. give and take of a democracy is never neat and pretty but gets the end result after the end where people expect the verdict, because they had the punches that go in t the ring. >
